All About Wasps
There are 2 types of wasp that you are likely to come across: solitary, which are rarely a concern, and social. Social wasps cluster together with their nest population reaching anything up to 10,000 which is staggering and why these are the nests that bother people most. They build nests from wood scrapings, cardboard and paper which they mix with their saliva to form cellulose. They often choose sunny spots when building nests but they can be found in a variety of places and are most commonly found under eaves of houses, in attics, walls, roof spaces, trees, hedges and underground. Care should always be taken around wasps and their nests as their venom contains a pheromone that causes other wasps to become more aggressive so it is not advisable to swat one near its nests or other wasps. For that reason alone, if you do come across a nest, it should be reported for removal immediately; especially if it is in a public place such as the home or commonly used public spaces.
Are Wasps Harmful?
For a minority of people, yes, as the venom in a wasp sting can cause anaphylactic shock which can be fatal. An ordinary sting however, can be treated with ammonia, alcohol or cold poultices followed by antihistamine ointment. Medical help should always be sought immediately if you are stung in the mouth or neck or if you experience dizziness, nausea, unusual swelling or extreme pain following a sting though.
